Rims sizes?

Anybody know if or what size rims and tires will fit the 97-03 model trucks that may be able to fit from the current or slightly older f-150's? I'm having a hell of a time finding the 17 inch stock rims and tires for my expedition and f-150, all the junk yards have are 15 inch and the odd 16 but no 17's and they are the stock form on both my trucks!

I recall the wheels on my '98 XL 4x4 were 17".... there was a guy I worked with that had the same year truck, but in a higher trim level, that was running factory aluminum 18's.

Ever considered going to an 18" and adjusting the tire size so that the speedo remains unchanged?

Not sure what your budget is or what style you're looking for, or even how badly you need them, but there's always the option of checking at the Ford dealers Parts Desk ?

You won't be able to use wheels from anything newer than an 03 or 04 Heritage as well as anything older than 97, the bolt patterns are different.

You could probably get some aftermarket rims for a decent price.

Did you have the junk yard check the hotline for parts to see if anyone else may have them ? I know the wreckers out this way don't even save the rims when you call about rims out here they tell you to come check the yard yourself.
